How tall and wide will Seaberry get?
Denis on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The seaberry plants grow to be approximately 8-10 feet tall and wide. Spacing between plants should be around 8 feet apart (to allow room for the plants to mature). The recommendation is to plant the Leikora variety within 50 feet from the male pollinator for adequate cross-pollination and fruit production.

The plants have survived some hard weather and are looking very healthy. Hope to see some fruit this year.

Seaberry
The female plants are doing beautifully - growing well even in two very challenging (hot and dry) summers. Unfortunately the pollinator plant didn't make it (summer of 2015), nor did the replacement (late summer 2015)- so at this point there is no hope of fruiting. Stark sold out this year, so I'll look in the spring.

No blossom yet
The plants are quite large already, I am waiting patiently for blossoms and fruits, so far none have appeared. They are very hardy, I may try to shape a bit.

Leikora Seaberry in Utah
This female berry is bearly surviving at my backyard. It's probably due to high pH, or luck of Sun. However the male berry one feet away is doing just right. So my assumption is that selection of female berry that I got was not as good as for male berry.
